In which we do not yet return to our 'regularly scheduled programming'

Previous discussion/news post
Previous post: The 'breakup post' :(

I'm not exactly sure yet what it's going to look like when we do return to our 'regularly scheduled programming.' I think that things will likely go on quite similarly to what we were doing before with some tweaks here and there. I'm not certain exactly what those tweaks might be. At some point we may even consider a name change (but not anytime soon).

There is a big part of me that wants things to go back to "normal" as soon as possible, but the bigger part of me says that things won't ever be "normal" again and it would be unhealthy for us to pretend that they will be. We need time to process what's happened before moving forward. And when we do things are going to be different, but I see no reason why this comm can't continue as a place for people who love this band and all of its members to come together and share news and discuss the goings-on in the guys' lives.
Our band's canon is closed now and a lot of MCR comms and sites are closing and/or becomming inactive because of that. I can understand why. But I still have a lot of passion for this band and for the people who have made it wonderful for the past 12 years. It's sad to say goodbye to the canon era, but anyone who has been in fandom as long as I have knows that amazing things can happen in a post-canon era. I am incredibly excited to see what wonderful things are in store for the members of this band for MCR fandom's 'post-canon era'!

For the time-being, I feel that this comm is still in flux. We have had some time to digest the news, but this is still a period of mourning. I anticipate that the post after this one will look a lot more like our regular news/discussion posts, but I think it's too soon to go back to that model just yet.

Fanfic Reading Club is on indefinite haitus, but it WILL return eventually.

So what's going on right now?

*A matter of discussion for this post is watch parties. We did one for LOTMS, but I would like to do more. Please reply with a list of things you might like to watch for viewing parties and what days/times are good for you.

*Picpams are always welcome!
- MikeyWay Monday
- Total Band Tuesday
- Gee Way Wednesday
- Ray Toro Thursday
- Frankie Friday
- Shipping Saturday & Sunday

*Inspired by Gerard's tweets last week, we have a Listen and Feel post going for listening to MCR and reflecting on the music. We will be discussing Gerard's tweets about Danger Days and Bullets whenever he gets around to listening to them and tweeting about it. (Although he seems to be procrastinating right now.)

*All are still welcome to join in and comment on our LOTMS veiwing post. While you are there, be sure and check out the lovely LOTMS gifspams posted by our own [Bad username: fadingendlessley]! Here, here, and here.

And here's some new media as a reminder that life does indeed go on.

Gerard and Bandit went to watch Lindsey perform on Saturday!

Life On The Murder Scene




This post is meant to be the first in a series of viewing posts where fans can congregate at (hopefully) coordinated times to watch together and share memories of our favorite band. Feel free to comment anywhere in this post with what other things you might like to try and watch together along with what time(s) are good for you for viewing.


It seems fitting to begin with Life On The Murder Scene.

I am hoping that most of us have our own copies of this media, but if anyone does have a d/l link that they are willing to share either in a comment or in PMs, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, it is possible to watch all of LOTMS on YouTube. I believe that this playlist is complete. If you try watching it and discover that it is not complete, please let me know and I'll try to find one that is.

Okay, let's watch this amazing documentary about our amazing band and have all the feelings and share all the hugs and talk about how there will never be another band like this one and cry and hold each other and cuddle in the blanket fort.
Feel free to join in the discussion even if you aren't able to watch along with us in real time. This post isn't going to go anywhere and I have a feeling we're going to be needed to talk about this stuff for a while.

Come discuss with us over on Dreamwidth

Listen and feel post
band of my heart
rubytuesday5681
Inspired by our fearless leader, who is still clearly our fearless leader despite the disbanding, we have decided to make this post for "listening and feeling".
This is a place for all fans to listen to MCR music and share the feelings that well up in you as you listen. This is a place for us all to process our grief together and share our emotions as they relate to this amazing band's music. Feel free to share both what these songs have always meant for you and also what they mean to you now in light of the ending of the band. Certainly our feelings for certain songs may have changed now that the band is over. :(
Be as honest and upset or as detached and clinical as you need to be. And then share hugs, love, and support for your fellow fans without judgment.
Now is the time for us all to come together and support one another as we grieve this tremendous loss that has touched us all deeply in different ways.
Now, go have a listen and share whatever comes to mind in the comment threads in this post.

Please wait to comment until I've started all the comment threads. There will be 6 - Bullets, Revenge, Black Parade, Danger Days, Conventional Weapons, and all other non-album songs. Thank you.

Come listen and share feelings in the DW post.

Tell us about some lyrics from non-album songs that deeply resonate with you and explain why they are so meaningful to you. Think through songs from b-sides, soundtracks, Mad Gear, etc... Just don't use Conventional Weapons songs as we'll have a separate question for those songs later. (Feel free to answer this same question for Danger Days as well!)

==> No poll this week due to mod illness and inability to use higher-processing brain functions.

***FYI***
This discussion post is the LAST discussion post in which the mods will be crossposting news updates and picspams to the comments of the discussion posts on both LJ and DW. After this post, the mods will ONLY be posting news updates to the comments of the DW post! This means we are about halfway through our "transition time" in the moving of comm activity from LJ to DW and if you still have not joined the comm on DW now is the time to do so! Crossposting updates to both posts is exhausting and confusing (comods-amirite?) and the last post had more than a hundred more comments on DW than on LJ. It's clear that the majority of comm participants are more comfortable on DW so that is where comm activity is going to be.
